Republican Tyranny in Tampa: What Happened and Why?

Republican Tyranny in Tampa: What Happened and Why? 

I just read on one of the social network sites I belong to that Ron Paul is planning a 3rd party run for President.  People have their panties in a bunch saying he will be the reason Obama gets re-elected.  I have a few thoughts to share and several questions to ask on this matter.  The questions I have need some answers from people who will take an objective look at what I write and respond with thought rather than emotion.  Put your partisan hat aside and read on.

For any who are not aware of the situation I will give a short “cliff notes” version of what happened at the RNC convention in Tampa.  The establishment was so afraid of Ron Paul that they threw the rules out the window for the benefit of Mitt Romney.  The Republican Party establishment, along with the Romney campaign advisors, managed to change the rules to allow Romney to “select” the delegates he desired and to disqualify those elected at the state level if he didn’t like who they were committed to vote for at the convention.  Essentially the “presumptive nominee” now chooses who the delegates are despite what the state conventions might have done to elect their own choices.  So, if I run for president and am the “presumptive nominee” I get to disqualify anyone I think might vote for a candidate who garnered enough votes in a state to have a few delegate votes at the convention?   How nice for me!!!  No more floor fights, EVER!!  This is the short version, not the epic story.

I thought the idea of the convention was to get together, and to work within the rules of the party to nominate a candidate for the presidential election; that it is the method to settle disputes and come out the other side in agreement.  Apparently I am under a misconception.  The result of this convention is an extremely fractured party with the Ron Paul delegation already being blamed for what could very well be the re-election of Barack Obama in November.  I have some questions that I hope readers will ponder objectively before they answer.

First of all, when Romney had a majority of the delegates sent by the states, why inflame passions by starting a big fight over changing the rules to silence what was obviously a minority of delegates?  Were they really trying to avoid a fight on the floor for the nomination or were they deliberately alienating people?   What about those whose delegates were aligned with Santorum or Gingrich?  Hasn’t the Romney camp and their establishment elitist allies just disenfranchised them as well?  Isn’t a party convention the place where these nominee fights are supposed to take place, in a fair, honest, and democratic way?  When the whole purpose of the convention was “unity”, with a strong and cohesive voice, why did they go to all of this trouble to keep passions enflamed and drive the fight to the general election in November?  I saw this same thing happen at the state convention in Oklahoma.  I was a Santorum supporter which left me without a dog in the fight.  The established rules of the party and parliamentary procedure were violated repeatedly in what I saw as a deliberate tactic by the party establishment to divide the party.  I was appalled at the way party officials behaved in Norman, Oklahoma.  And then I see what happened in Tampa!!!  Why was a war that didn’t need to be fought started?

If the Romney camp and the establishment who runs the party wanted a unified voice why did they not just allow the process to proceed and come to the end with everyone feeling like they had a fair chance, to “have their day in court” so to speak?  Why disenfranchise a huge block of party delegates, and the voters they represented in Tampa?  Could it be that the Republican Party would rather lose as they did in 2008 and then sit back and snipe from the bushes like they have been doing since the last presidential election?  Republicans took the House of Representatives in 2010, and by that election control the finances of the government; yet they blame Harry Reid for their own failure to stop Obama when they have the power to do so.

In 2008 John McCain was a very weak, very liberal, candidate who picked Sarah Palin, a fiery conservative, as his running mate.  The McCain handlers repeatedly silenced Palin while McCain made a mess of everything he did. He irritated and alienated every group he was supposed to reel in with the “charm” that was to overcome his liberal leanings.  When he got his head handed to him on a platter by Obama the McCain team came out the very next day blaming Palin in a smear campaign that makes the Obama “blame Bush” tactic look like child’s play.  It was all too plain to me.  McCain ran a pathetic campaign and used Palin as the patsy to “save face”.

Now, in 2012, Mitt Romney has the same campaign handlers used by McCain in what was a huge disaster four years ago.  I wonder WHY????  Why is Romney using the same people who couldn’t get McCain elected over a nobody with less experience in politics than Sarah Palin?   Why does he take a bunch of losers and employ them in what I have been told is the most critical election in our lifetime?  Does this seem odd to anyone else or is it just me?

I also find it odd that what could have been a very positive and unifying convention was handled in a manner that caused more fractures than an earthquake.  Are the people who run the party really so stupid they can’t figure out how to handle something as simple as a vote of delegates?  Aren’t these people the “professional political experts” who know everything us “rubes” don’t know about politics?  If they are as smart as they are supposed to be, and would like for us to believe they are, why did the convention erupt in the chaos it did?  Are we looking at incompetence here or it is something more sinister? 

I am having a difficult time wrapping my brain around the developments I saw at the convention.  All of this contentious atmosphere could have been avoided by simply following the rules and being fair about how the convention was handled.  Instead of fighting and blaming each other why are Republican Party voters not asking these questions of those who caused the problems in the first place, the party “elites”?  Are Romney supporters Romneybots who fear a fair hearing for others or are they “useful idiots” being used by establishment insiders with an agenda that has yet to be seen?

Who does this bickering between Romney supporters and Paul supporters benefit?  The obvious answer is Barack Obama and Democrats but does it go deeper than that?  What happens if all of us get together and support Mitt Romney, and he is elected?  Will Romney and Republicans make good on their campaign promises or are those promises more empty hot air to garner votes from desperate citizens scared of a 2nd Obama term?  Has John Boehner fulfilled any of the promises he made so we would vote for Republicans in record numbers in 2010? 

If you will take a real close and objective look at the promises made by Boehner prior to November 2010 you will find he has done nothing but posture and bleat without really accomplishing anything.  We the People have seen repeated votes to raise the debt ceiling; and one continuing resolution after another to keep government funded at the levels established by the Democrats while Republicans blame Harry Reid for not passing a budget.  That is like complaining about a drug addict not getting clean while handing him the drugs he uses to stay wasted.  Boehner and the Republican Party sit in the shadows, doing nothing, and snipe at Democrats.  Obama does nothing to improve our nation yet spends all of his effort blaming George Bush.  So, Democrats blame Bush; Republicans blame Democrats; and now the Romney camp will blame Ron Paul if he loses in November.  And while all this “blame game” is happening nothing gets done as our nation goes ever faster towards the cliff that leads to the abyss of financial ruin, ending in poverty and slavery for all of us.

Am I the only one who has figured out that neither political party has any intention of fixing what ails our nation?  Am I the only one who cares where we are headed as a people?  The politicians go right along living the high life off of the taxes we pay to fund their lavish lifestyles, while blaming each other for the problems.  Most of the tax money collected goes to government overhead, at the clip of about 72%.  They use some of the money, about 28%, to buy the loyalty of illegal aliens, poor people, the elderly, and anyone else they can buy; knowing full well that the goose that lays the golden egg is almost out of eggs.  They know we will collapse like Greece in a very short time but neither party is really doing anything to stop it are they?  They do nothing to solve the problems, but instead spend their time pointing fingers at each other.

So while we sit and snipe at each other and try to fix blame on Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, John Dummett (www.johndummett.us ), or any one of a dozen others who have a plan to restore liberty and financial stability both political parties and their high dollar financiers go on living life in style and laughing at us peasants fighting over crumbs.  What a sight we must be to those who are in control.  We the People fight each other while our enemies (Republican and Democrat elitists) sit back, laughing and waiting for the right time to drop the hammer of tyranny on all of us.

When We People should be looking to God for salvation from the evil foisted upon us by political parties most are looking to those same political parties for answers.  Way too many people are looking to Mitt Romney to save this nation just as many looked to Obama four years ago. Obama wasn’t the answer then, and Romney isn’t the answer now.  Prayer and only prayer will save our nation from the ravages of tyranny that is being brought by the Republican and Democrat Parties.

I hope those who read this will read it several times and get the true meaning of what I write.  I would really like some thoughtful answers rather than sniping and name calling.  I have posed questions about some serious issues that need thought put into them if we are to find reasonable answers that can be used to correct the situation.  Partisanship is not the answer here.  I don’t care if you support Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, or someone else, that isn’t the point.  We the People are on the Titanic but the politicians aren’t on here with us.  They have set themselves above us and have insulated themselves and their friends from the effects of the disaster that we are facing in a very short time if we don’t find some solutions.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Republican Party Treachery Rises Again in Tampa

Republican Party Treachery Rises Again in Tampa

Republican and Democrat: Two Wings of the Same Vulture

The choice of Paul Ryan as the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate almost had me convinced to vote for Mitt Romney in November but once again the Republican Party blew a chance to show me they are above the Democrat Party when it comes to morals, honor, integrity, and concern for the Constitution of the United States of America.  Once again the New World Order globalists who run the Globalist Oligarchy Party (GOP) reminded me why I should vote for John Albert Dummett Jr. (www.johndummett.us), a write-in candidate for the Republican Party in 2012.  At their convention this past week the Republican Party establishment showed me they have no regard for the grassroots workers, the “We the People” they should be looking to for support.  Instead of looking to grassroots conservatives they have once again shown they have no regard for liberty whatsoever.  The party establishment again spits in the face of We the People and tells us “we know better than you, we don’t care what you want, sit down and shut up”.

The Republican convention in Tampa, Florida was another despicable display of tyranny, totalitarianism, and disregard for the voices of We the People.  My first experience with such behavior occurred at the Oklahoma state convention in Norman, Oklahoma last May.  The Oklahoma convention, and the two state committee meetings associated with it, showed a total disregard for a large number of delegates who refused to kowtow to the establishment’s dictatorial rule.  Most of those delegates were Ron Paul supporters but some were not.  I went to the state convention as a delegate from my county, hoping to see a debate and an open battle for the soul of the party.  I was disappointed and disgusted to see the Keystone Kops in charge of the state party apparatus.  Among the problems were a credentialing fiasco, rules ignored, parliamentary procedure ignored, and a large portion of the delegates treated as if they weren’t even there (http://frontporchpolitics.com/2012/05/oklahoma-state-gop-receives-legal-challenge-over-state-convention/ ).  Any semblance of free speech and free expression of ideas was squashed time and again by those in charge of the convention (http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2012/06/oklahoma-republican-party-at-it-again/).  I came away from the state convention disgusted with the Republican Party but with a resolve to work to make things different, to do my best to insure that every delegate would be given the opportunity to have their voice heard in the future.

This past week has deepened my disgust with the Republican Party and the use of Marxist tactics so often used by those in charge of the Democrat Party.  In a series of rule change votes, those running the convention repeatedly ignored the “nay” votes to unilaterally declare the rules changed to suit the Mitt Romney camp and his establishment New World Order bosses (http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/28/over-loud-boos-romney-supporters-pass-new-rules/).  This was the same tactic I saw in Norman, Oklahoma at the state convention in May. 

John Boehner, the main traitor in the House of Representatives, was the worst of the bunch as he ruled “without hearing objection” that the rule change is adopted despite loud voices in the “nay” column (http://www.dailypaul.com/252144/txgop-evidence-shows-rnc-rigged-vote-on-rule-change-at-republican-convention-2012).  The video of this atrocity can be found in the following link, with the teleprompter showing the decision had already been made before the vote was called for. (http://theunconventionalconservative.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/the-ayes-have-it-boehner-ignores-voice-vote-makes-decision-via-teleprompter/)

This wasn’t the only case of dictatorial rule at the convention but it is the most egregious example of tyrannical action I have seen in my lifetime.  I have heard reports of Ron Paul delegates being refused credentials, entry into the convention, and being misdirected to wrong locations until after votes were taken.  The Romney campaign advisors are the ones who pushed this action to effectively silence any dissent to their power grab (http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/12660-republican-convention-rules-changes-how-the-establishment-stole-the-gop).  They are only interested in getting their way and have absolutely no desire to hear the opinions of those who disagree with their ideas.  As it now stands, the party hierarchy can change the rules at any time, without another vote, to suit any situation they find themselves desiring to sidestep.

This is the group that tells us they are the ones to lead us to liberty and a better nation for all, and that I should vote a straight party line ballot to insure that they have the numbers in government that they need to govern in “my best interests”.  Excuse me if I sound skeptical but isn’t this convention a prime example of what we DON’T want our government to be?  If they are willing to perpetrate this kind of tyranny at a party nominating convention what will they do if they control the entire government?

These are the people who pledge to make America a better and more free nation yet behave like dictators at their own convention, a time when dissent should be heard and compromises made to achieve unity.  What the establishment and the Romney camp call “unity” really isn’t unity at all.  We saw an example of Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Communist China, Communist Cuba, Islamic Iran, and Marxist Venezuela style “unity” in Tampa this week.  The “unity” raved about by the establishment of the party is no more than the political execution of free speech and the disenfranchisement of a great many party delegates, along with the voters they represented at the convention.  These disenfranchised delegates are men and women who spent their own money and time to attend the convention in hopes of having their voices heard in the “American Way”, but instead found themselves treated like “enemies of the state” by the very people who call for a free exchange of ideas and opinions.

So Mitty, tell me again how you are better than Barack Obama. Tell me again how you will offer more opportunity to live in freedom from dictatorship and slavery.  John Boehner, tell me again how you are a leader, unlike Nancy Pelosi, and how you will change the way business is done in the House of Representatives if I send you another Republican to help you.  Mitch McConnell, tell me again how you have more regard for liberty and the tenets of the Constitution than Dingy Harry Reid.

I will vote for the Republican candidate in the Oklahoma 2nd Congressional District because I believe in him.  I believe Markwayne Mullin will not vote to return Traitor John Boehner to the position of Speaker of the House.  I also believe Mr. Mullin will represent me in a manner that is within the scope of the Constitution of the United States of America; with, honor, integrity, and concern for conservative values.

I WILL NOT vote for Mitty the Poo, the all-white Obama, under any circumstances.  I will not vote for more tyranny because it has an “R” instead of a “D” behind its name.  I have heard so many people who find Mitty reprehensible but will vote for him because they want to remove Obama from office.  I have seen enough from the Romney camp to realize that just changing dictators is not the answer to our nation’s woes.

The answer to our nation’s problems will come only when WE THE PEOPLE rise up and refuse to continue the circular firing squad of a New World Order Republican this time and a New World Order Democrat next time and a New World Order Republican next, etc.  Both political parties have shown their true colors, and those colors are the red flag of Communism. 

I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!! with tyranny from either political party.

The Republican Party: The Party of Pathetic Progressive Cowards

I have been listening to the cacophony of cowardly Republicans jumping all over Congressman Todd Akin of Missouri concerning his comments about rape and abortion a few days ago.  I understand that what he said was ill-advised but he tried to answer a very tough question instead of dodging it as most politicians would do.  He did manage to make a mess of it but has attempted to make amends in a very humble and honorable fashion.  Akin has apologized profusely, explained what he actually meant, explained where he got the information he was basing his statement on, and has also acknowledged that he spoke on facts that he now knows were feasible but questionable.  The man made a mistake in the way he stated his point and the entire Republican Party is throwing him to the wolves for it.

 I was listening to him on the Sean Hannity Radio Show today and it reminded me of why I rarely listen to that political hack (www.mediaite.com).  Rep. Akin explained himself, AGAIN, and said he was staying in the race.  Hack Hannity complains daily about the double standard in the media yet he is the first one to dive into the double standard, urging Akin to get out because he will “hurt the Republican Party”.  Hack Hannity must have “suggested” he step aside a dozen times in the few minutes Akin was on the radio.  How does one whine about a double standard and then jump right into the middle of that same double standard?  Isn’t that being a bit hypocritical?

Republican National  Committee chairman Reince Preibus and a whole bunch of former Missouri “moderate” RINO cowards are urging Akin to get out and let someone else run against Claire McCaskill, one of the most liberal of senators and an Obama doormat.  I heard today on the Hannity hack show that the “moderate” Mitt Romney is also urging Akin to step aside, “for the good of the party”.  What a bunch of slap fighting sissies!!! 

The reason Republicans can’t win is people like me are fed up with the cowardly actions of the party establishment.  Every time some liberal hollers boo they go hide under their beds and cry for their mommy.  Akin is a staunch supporter of the FairTax, has voted against all of the big spending Democrat legislation, voted no on raising the debt ceiling (http://akin.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1641&Itemid=88), against the wishes of John Boehner and the other RINO’s in the party, and has voted against the party leadership on many other occasions because he values principal over politics.  AHA!!! I think I just struck on the problem Akin has today.  He actually shows honor, integrity, and backbone so he must be thrown to the wolves by the cowards of the party establishment.

I have said before, and I will repeat here, that I have more respect for Harry Reid, Dingy Harry Reid, than I do for John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and a host of others in the Republican Party.  Harry Reid will stand up in your face and say “SCREW YOU!!!“ when he has a different opinion.  Republicans, on the other hand, cower and beg for someone to let them do a little bit of what they want to do.  Reid has refused to pass a budget for 3 years because John Boehner doesn’t have enough backbone to force the issue.  Boehner the traitor passes one Continuing Resolution after another to keep Harry Reid, and fellow Republicans, from being forced to take a vote on a budget.  Boehner doesn’t want the budget “to be an issue right before an election”.  So much for the resolve needed to solve the financial problems of our nation. He will let Democrats go right on spending like there is no tomorrow because he doesn’t have the courage to take a stand.  And we ousted Pelosi for this wimp?  I don’t see a gain here.  The spending hasn’t dropped one iota since Boehner took over the speakership, and Akin is the one who is destroying voter confidence in the Republican Party?  I don’t think so!!

 And now to Mitty the Poo Romney.  I never thought he was the one America needs, until he picked Paul Ryan for his VP choice.  Finally, I thought, Mitty actually found a spine.  Then today comes and he is back to his cowardly “moderate” ways of throwing anything or anyone conservative to the wolves (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/08/21/Romney-Calls-For-Akin-To-Step-Down). 

I have lived for 24 years with the “vote for this guy and we will get a conservative next election cycle” story.  It isn’t going to happen as long as We the People rely on the Progressive Republican Party to represent our conservative views.  Conservatism gets hammered by Republicans every time it sticks its head up.  Once again we see the lack of backbone that has kept Democrats in power, for the most part, over the last 60 years.  I saw this in 2010 when Charles Thompson, a staunch Constitutional Conservative, was running for the Oklahoma 2nd Congressional seat held by Democrat Dan Boren.  Charles refused to sell We the People out for his own benefit and the RNC refused to help him at all.  Charles lost the election by about 6% in a race that had not been closer than a 70%-30% split since Tom Coburn left for the Senate.  This is the attitude of the Republican establishment towards conservatives.

As long as we conservative voters rely on meeley mouthed cowards to represent us we will never solve the problems facing our nation.  Republicans have been a huge part of the problem because they lack the courage and the integrity to stand up for what they say they believe in.  They are real good at criticizing and back seat driving but they lack the fortitude to govern responsibly.

I was told a few weeks ago that there is no place for me in the Republican Party because I am critical of Mitty the Poo and the Republican establishment. I was told I need to either get behind the establishment totally or get out of the Republican Party and go Independent.  I told this person that I am exactly what the Republican Party needs, a person with the courage to stand up and tell Dingy Harry “SCREW YOU!!! we will do it right and bury you under public support”.  Maybe the man was right; maybe there isn’t a place in the Republican Party for a conservative with the backbone to stand up and speak boldly for true conservatism.  Courage and straight talk doesn’t seem to be appreciated in the Republican Party, nor does there seem to be a place for forgiveness.

 I say “crapola” on this hurting the Republican Party.  To me Akin’s show of repentance, courage, and the resolve to fight through this is refreshing.  I want to see men and women who will stand up for America and conservative values.  We the People need men and women who we can count on to stand up for us.  Look at what the establishment has done to Michele Bachman over the Muslim Brotherhood thing.  She and a few, a very few, others stand up for liberty and our way of life, and look what happens.  These same “moderates” that now throw Todd Akin under the bus castigated Bachmann for having the temerity to care about American values, American ideals, and the liberty guaranteed by the Constitution.

It is time for the Republican Party to show We the People they deserve our votes.  This whining about a “double standard in the media” just doesn’t cut it any longer, especially when they participate in such behavior themselves.  It is time to go out and find a spine.  Mitt Romney is worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  Why not spend some of that money on spines for all of the establishment elites of the party and give We the People, the conservative people, something to hang our hats on.  If they can’t stand with us now they don’t deserve our votes in November. 

Todd Akin is the sacrificial lamb Republicans will use to explain away any losses, just as Sarah Palin was McCain’s scapegoat in 2008.  America is going down the tubes to dictatorship because Republicans either don’t have the courage to change our path or they are complicit and desire to see a Third World toilet dictatorship established here.  Which is it Republican Party establishment?

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Brandon Raub: Victim of Tyranny in America

Brandon Raub: Victim of Tyranny in America 

The End of Liberty is Near

I find the current situation in our nation both frightening and ironic.  The frightening part took a more serious turn a few days ago.  On Thursday August 16, 2012, former Marine Corp member Brandon Raub, decorated for valor in both Iraq and Afghanistan, was “detained”; not arrested but “detained”, by federal, state, and local authorities.  He was taken from his home in handcuffs, without charge, and is being held indefinitely pending a “mental competency hearing” before a judge (http://beforeitsnews.com/politics/2012/08/brandon-raub-ndaa-arrest-video-2449432.html).  And what is his “crime”?  Mr. Raub was so bold as to criticize the federal government; Barack Obama, Eric Holder, politicians in both political parties, and bureaucrats who ignore the Constitution and do as they please without the consent of the governed.  Raub had the temerity to make references to the “Ron Paul Revolution”.  His rhetoric is undoubtedly strong, direct, and to the point; but it is no where near criminal, or the ravings of a lunatic, from what I have seen.  His ire is directed at the actions of government officials who have sworn an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America” but instead choose to ignore their oath of office, and their sworn duties as elected and appointed officials.  Were his comments irrational, threatening, terroristic, or seditious?  I don’t see them as being outrageous at all.  His posts are reflective, and critical, of the current activities by government agencies, bureaucrats, politicians, etc. (http://www.facebook.com/#!/raub.brandon ).

The ironic side is even more disturbing.  Once again I hear the New Black Panthers making public threats against “crackers and their babies”.  In internet radio programs that they proudly make public, these “people” call for black people to go into hospital nurseries and throw bombs into rooms full of “cracker babies” (http://www.examiner.com/article/new-black-panther-leader-kill-white-babies-by-bombing-nurseries ).  They boldly call for the murder of all white people and pose on facebook with AK-47 rifles, with their faces covered of course, and again boldly call for the murder of people because they are white.  This comes on the heals of a leader of the group stating in a video several months ago that “I hate white people, all of them.  Every cracker needs to be killed, all their children, all their babies, etc.” (http://www.wnd.com/2010/07/175817/).  Hate speech??  Racism??  I guess not!!

I wonder why the FBI, state police, and local police have not rounded up this bunch, those who are so boldly and publicly making terroristic threats against white people on an almost daily basis.  They have also made threats against delegates to the Republican National Party Convention in Tampa, Florida (http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/08/14/NBP-Threaten-Cracker-Republican-Tampa-Convention-Wont-Be-Tolerated-Our-Feet-Will-Be-On-Your-Necks ) yet we see no SWAT teams going after them. 

And why is Louis Farrakhan allowed to spit out the vile crap he does?  He actually threatens the life of Barack Obama and not a word is said, no denunciation, no “investigation”, nothing but silence http://rushlimbaughreport.blogspot.com/2012/04/did-louis-farrakhan-threaten-obama.html.  Isn’t this hate speech??? Isn’t this racist??  Isn’t this terroristic (http://www.examiner.com/article/new-black-panther-leader-malik-zulu-shabazz-asks-the-ballot-or-the-bullet) ??   

I don’t really wonder why the hate from the Black Panthers and Farrakhan is ignored, I know  why (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/dont-miss-the-connection-obama-and-holder-delivered-to-office-by-black-panthers-owe-them-some-favors/).    It is ignored because they are black and they hate America.  And because they are black and hate America they can say whatever they please, and do whatever they please, without any recrimination from this band of criminals now in charge of our government.  (One disclaimer: black conservatives aren’t given the same leeway as the Pink Panthers.)  White people aren’t allowed to spout such tripe.  Ted Nugent made a political reference a couple of months ago and was descended upon by Secret Service people.  He wasn’t arrested but was interrogated for much less than what we hear out of the mouths of black radicals espousing murder and sedition.

Brandon Raub was targeted because, besides being a white patriot, he stood up to a tyrannical government that is well on their way to subjugating We the People.  The “Patriot Act”, the most unconstitutional piece of legislation ever signed into law, gives a criminal government the right to arrest and hold anyone they choose; without charges, without a warrant, and without a trial for as long as they wish to do so.  It came from a Republican controlled Congress and was signed by George W. Bush, a Republican “moderate”.  From this we got the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and the FEMA camps.  By the way, for those who called me a conspiracy theory nut two and a half years ago, welcome to the reality of the FEMA camps.  They were built in 2009 and are being financed and staffed with money in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, passed almost unanimously in both houses of Congress and signed by Obama in December.

This same NDAA 2012 allows for the “arrest without charges, and indefinite detention without trial” (Sections 1022 and 1023), for those accused of being “potential terrorists” or supporting anyone suspected to qualify.  This means that anyone who speaks up for Brandon Raub could be denounced and also “detained” as Raub is being “detained”.  It seems odd to me that these provisions don’t apply to the New Black Panthers.  If there was ever a reason to “detain” people for making terror threats it is this bunch of hate mongers.  They spew their diatribe of hate and terror threats all over every medium of communication available without so much as a word from Obama, Holder, and the rest of the criminals sitting in Washington D. C.

A double standard does exist and the lame stream media, including FOX News Network and much of conservative talk radio, is complicit. Not only do the lame streams ignore the violations of the Constitution going on every day, they actually cheer lead for those committing the violations.  Our liberty, our Republic of the United States of America, is teetering on the edge of extinction and very few in any media seem to have the courage to really speak boldly about what is happening.  Mark Levin and Michael Savage have been rather vocal but most of the”biggies” sidestep this issue of such bold tyranny in all branches of government.

Carrying the water on the most serious issues of liberty is left to those of us who have no national voice and lack the wealth many media darlings protect with their silence.  And what about us “little people”, the “peasants”?  Two days after the “detention” of Brandon Raub  I saw posts on facebook by many who are fearful and plan to “be more careful of what they write” so as to avoid catching the eye of the federal government.  This is exactly the plan of those who have violated the rights of Brandon Raub.  If they can silence us by making a public display of his fate they win.  Every despot in history has used this tactic of fear and intimidation.  How many will cower in fear due to Raub’s treatment; one hundred, one thousand, ten thousand, one hundred thousand?  I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!  I AM A MAN!!!   I AM AN AMERICAN!!!

The founding fathers pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” through “the protection of Divine Providence” to establish the United States of America as THE beacon of freedom throughout the world.  Many gave their lives to establish, and many more have given their lives to preserve, the concept of freedom we are guaranteed “by nature and nature’s God” in the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States of America.  It is incumbent on those of us who inherited that liberty given by so many to restore what has been lost, and to leave the full measure of freedom to those who come behind us.  Our responsibility is to honor those who came before, those who stand for liberty now, and those who will inherit what we leave them. 

Brandon Raub is one who is standing for liberty now.  If we cower in fear because of his treatment we will have abandoned the efforts and sacrifices of so many and will leave a future of tyranny, slavery, despotism, and poverty to those who follow us.  Our commission, our responsibility, is to stand for liberty now, regardless of the cost to ourselves. 

Everyone who reads this needs to ask themselves a question:  “If not now, when; if not me, who?”  Will you stand with Brandon Raub now? https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/8LqA0?psid=30813f268825455cb13753f3ef838728) Will you honor George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and the others who forged this nation out of tyranny?  Will you stand in honor of those who have lost life, limb, and possessions through 236 years of fighting to preserve this freedom?  Will you stand in honor of those fighting tyranny in Third World toilets in the Middle East, those who are trying to defeat Islamic nut cases before they can hit us again?  Will you honor those who will inherit the future from you?

 “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” Thomas Jefferson.

“Romney Hood”? Obama Campaign Showing Signs of Idiocy

I find the recent Obama re-election campaign tactic of referring to Mitt Romney as “Romney Hood” rather interesting.  Obama and his cronies are actually complimenting Romney, seemingly without being smart enough to realize it.  If idiocy isn’t the case they are counting on We the People being too stupid to know our fables.  I am a long way from being a supporter of Mitt Romney but this isn’t about Romney, it is about the Muslim-in-Chief sitting in the White House and his associates.

For those who may not be familiar with the “The Legend of Robin Hood” let me give you a lesson in the true story related in the fable.  Robin Hood was the son of a titled man in England during the days of the Crusades.  When King  Richard the Lionhearted, Robin’s father, went off to fight the Saracens Richard left his evil and greedy brother Prince John in charge.  As the legend goes, John and the Sheriff of Nottingham stole the land belonging to Robin of Locksley and threw his family out of their castle to live off the land as peasants.  The common belief of the story in the legend of Robin Hood is that he and his “merry men” stole from the rich to give to the poor. This understanding of the fable is flawed.  The Obama camp is using this misunderstanding in a sarcastic manner, suggesting “Romney Hood” will steal from the poor to give to the rich.  The perception given by the Obama crowd couldn’t be further from the truth.

When you take a look at the reality of the Robin Hood legend, you find a different concept altogether.  Robin Hood didn’t “steal from the rich to give to the poor”.  What was actually happening was that the tax collectors of Prince John were out stealing everything they could take from the peasants; crops, money, livestock, food, and enslaving those who King Richard had treated fairly.  What Robin Hood and his Merry Men did was intercept the caravans, take the money from the tax collectors, and give it back to those from whom it had been stolen.  He was taking from the tyrannical government, and giving back to the poor, what had been taken unjustly.  Quite a different story when you look at what the fable was really about.

Now let’s look at today’s situation.  We are told Obama and his cronies are going to “level the playing field” by “re-distributing the wealth”, essentially taking from those who have and giving it to those who don’t.  But Obama isn’t taking from the rich to give to the poor; he is taking from the middle and lower class to give to HIS friends and supporters.  When Obama bailed out Chrysler and General Motors, instead of letting them go through bankruptcy, he took money that had been invested by us “peasants” and gave it to the unions, his allies.

Under bankruptcy laws the “secured investors” get their money first and “unsecured investors” get what is left.  In this case the “secured investors” were demonized as big banks and “fat cat money managers”.  In some cases that may be true but most of the “fat cat money managers” manage money for people like me.  Part of my retirement plan, money that I had been saving for 35 years, was invested in Chrysler and GM.

When Obama took that money and gave it to Richard Trumka, a multi-millionaire union boss, he took money out of my retirement fund to give to Trumka and his union cronies.  I draw $18,000 per year out of that fund, hardly enough to make me a “fat cat millionaire”.  That money is gone and I will never get it back.  Trumka and his union friends give much of it back to the Demoncrat Party in the form of campaign donations, a monumental money laundering scheme that would make Bernie Madoff look like an amateur.  They spend the rest living a life of luxury I will never be able to afford.

As much as I detest Mitt Romney I cannot sit back and let a lie go unanswered.  Obama and his Axis of Evil partners are destroying this nation every day they have control.  Romney may not be much better for the nation in the long run but if he isn’t, let’s at least oppose him with truth instead of lies.  Obama has ignored a court order to re-open drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, a move that would help alleviate our oil price problems.  Instead he is giving $4 billion to Brazil and Mexico to drill in the same Gulf of Mexico that he says is too dangerous for us to drill in; using the same drilling rigs that used to provide oil for our nation.  This has transferred jobs, and tax dollars paid in to the government by American citizens, to Brazil and Mexico.  This also takes the potential tax revenue from the sale of the oil; the social security taxes, the income taxes, excise taxes and whatever other taxes there are away from the federal and state treasuries.  Oh goody, we can replace the shortages by borrowing that money from China.

Obama also stopped the Keystone Pipeline from being built on American soil by American workers, benefitting the American economy.  These and many other actions taken by Obama and his evil cohorts are stealing from the poor and middle class to benefit his friends in foreign countries.  He is also hurting those union workers who would have had jobs in the oil and pipeline industry.  Where are the union bosses who should be screaming about these jobs going to foreigners?  They are silent because they don’t care about American workers.  They have unionized foreign companies so they still get their money.

In the end, the “Romney Hood” label is designed to influence ignorant or stupid people to vote for Obama and his evil cohorts in November.  Ignorance is the lack of factual information; as opposed to stupid, which is the lack of willingness to act on factual information.  I believe Obama is counting on the ignorance or stupidity of voters to succeed with this tactic.  The problem is that Obama just may be correct in his assessment of We the People.  Many are indeed too stupid to either comprehend or acknowledge the issue, and many more are oblivious and content to stay that way.  Something for nothing is a very powerful incentive for many to vote for Obama again.  The trouble with spending other people’s money, however, is that it eventually runs out.

When those producing finally see that producing gains them nothing they will stop producing and we will have total dependence on government for everything.  How does a government with no source of income provide anything??? Slave labor is the usual means of production in this system of government.  This system is now or has been in use in many countries throughout the world.  Soviet Russia, under several rulers, used this system until its economy collapsed in 1989.  Adolph Hitler also used this system in Nazi Germany until it was defeated by Great Britain, Australia, and the United States in World War II.  Fidel Castro in Cuba, Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, Chairman Mao and his successors in China, the Kim Jong line of dictators in North Korea, and others throughout the world are using the same system proposed by Obama.  Do you know anything about how the people in these countries live?  Can you spell poverty, slavery, destitution, fear, hunger, hopelessness?

I believe this nation is facing the greatest peril in its history, regardless of which one of these ineligible (U S Constitution: Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5) candidates is elected in November.  I don’t write this in support of Mitt Romney.  I write this in opposition to the outright lies and deception of a political campaign run by the most obnoxious and evil cabal to ever sit in authority in America.  If Obama is going to run a campaign he should run it with honesty and truth but that is never going to happen as he knows those methods would doom his re-election hopes.

Now back to the “Romney Hood” story.  What the Obama campaign intends is for We the People to equate Romney with rich thieves when in essence the true legend of Robin Hood equates Obama and his tax collectors with Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham.  Obama (Prince John’s government) takes from those who earn the money (peasants) to give to those who don’t earn it (large “too big to fail” banks, union bosses, illegal aliens, and moochers).  Romney (Romney Hood) says he will take the money stolen by outrageous taxes and give the money back to the rightful owners (peasants).

I don’t know what Romney will do if elected but I do know what Obama has done to We the People and the nation founded 236 years ago on the premise of God, honor, honesty, and a fair chance for all.  Outright lies are being used against a candidate I don’t like by a candidate I detest for his lying, duplicity, tyranny, and evil.

Some will still vote for Obama but I hope that it won’t be because they buy into the “Romney Hood” lie.  Deception seems to be the way to get elected in America these days and that is sad.  Good government takes educated and intelligent decisions by voters who take the time to know what and who they are voting for.  If voters make their decisions on sound bites and talking points our nation will soon be a Third World dictatorship akin to Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea.  I hope I don’t live long enough to see that happen to the greatest form of government ever formed on Earth.

What is Wrong With Conservatives?

I often wonder what is wrong with conservative voters.  Too many people either can’t or won’t see the forest for the trees.  People decry John Boehner for being a coward but take a look at voters who call themselves conservatives.  I belong to 25 conservative social network sites and interact with people on facebook almost daily.  The biggest majority of those I come in contact with are so afraid of Barack Obama and what he will bring in a second term that they are willing to vote for “anyone but Obama”.  I wrote about this very subject a few months back (http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2011/10/anyone-but-obama-be-careful-what-you-ask-for/) .  Fear is not a good motivator in something so important.  It blinds people to the danger ahead.

My support of John Dummett (www.johndummett.us) was termed by one person on facebook as running headlong into an ambush.  I find that ironic as that is my exact example of voting for Mitty the Poo, the all-white Obama.  Romney went from being a businessman to a career politician and has embraced the leftist mantra throughout his political career.  His excuse for not vetoing abortion in Massachusetts is that the legislature would just override him. Well, stand up for the principles you claim to believe in and force them to override your values based veto.   That is just one example of his lame excuses for advancing the leftist agenda.  Romneycare is another.  He has said he wants to repeal Obamacare; well, except for this part, and for that part, and this other thing.  He won’t repeal it, he wrote it.

Mitty has been endorsed by none other than George Soros, Obama’s main supporter, and one of the main architects of the coming New World Order (http://www.ask.com/web?q=george%20soros%20on%20mitt%20romney&o=15527&l=dis&prt=360&chn=retail&geo=US&ver=6 ).  That doesn’t give me much confidence in a future with Mitty as president.

History is full of societies tiring of one ruler and running headlong to someone who promises utopia but turns out to be a homicidal maniac.  During the reign of Louis XVI in France the people became so discontented they followed Robespierre in a revolt. Everything went well until Robespierre and his murdering thugs gained complete control of the land and then the very peasants who had installed them found themselves victims of the brutality they thought they were overthrowing.

In 1917 Russian peasants followed Vladimir Lenin in his quest for a “worker’s paradise” and overthrew Czar Nicholas, only to find Lenin and Stalin were much worse.  The poverty and hunger weren’t removed, only enhanced by torture, murder, and slave labor camps that killed an estimated 50 million people in the next 30 years.

In post-World War I Germany Adolph Hitler and his group of murderers promised another utopia. Things went well until they gained complete control over society, then things went downhill quickly.  They murdered 6 million Jews and more than 5 million Poles, Slaves, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and anyone else who didn’t meet with their satisfaction.  The “savior” of the Weimar Republic turned into a nightmare of war and terror that destroyed or devastated 4 nations, including his own, and killed an estimated 50 million people.  The Chinese people found the same situation with Chairman Mao and his “re-education camps”.

Now we come to America in 2012 and I see history repeating itself.  Mitt Romney, who was less conservative than John McCain (of all people) in 2008, is the darling of those who despise anything conservative.  He is loved by the Republican Party establishment but loathed by We the People, yet most of those I interact with will vote for him as a protest vote against Obama.  And those same people accuse me of casting a “protest vote” because I intend to write-in John Dummett.  Supposedly conservative people are running in fear of Obama, right into the trap being set by Soros and his minions who want Romney to seem like a great alternative when he is nothing of the sort.

My “protest” vote isn’t a protest vote; it is a vote for the Constitution.  Why is it that people who call themselves conservatives will vote for a man they know is no where near conservative?  Their fear prevents them from seeing reality.  That fear causes them to ignore the red flags that are flying high and vote for a man they know isn’t what they want.  People know what Mitt Romney is yet are willing to follow him out of fear.  If our founding fathers had this same amount of courage we would still be “sipping tea at two” and talking funny.

As long as We the People are willing to settle for the lesser of two evils we will never have any other option.  Just as the Jews peacefully walked into the cattle cars that took them to Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, Birkenau, and the other death camps Americans who call themselves conservatives are peacefully walking into the New World Order cattle cars that will take them to the FEMA camps for “re-education”.  Many are hoping for “peace in our time” but will find only tyranny in their acquiescence to the “peace in our time” idea.

Appeasement has never worked and never will.  Voting for Mitt Romney out of fear of Obama is trying to appease the New World Order and it can’t be done.  I recently read a book called “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn.  It is classified as fiction but it is more prophetic than fiction.  The book compares America to the ancient Israelites and the suffering brought about by their arrogance in the face of God.  The attacks on September 11, 2001 were just the beginning, a warning from God to turn back to Him but our leaders and most of the population ignored the warning and vowed to rebuild bigger and better.  It is the “Isaiah 9:10 effect” come to America.  The financial collapse in 2008 was another warning that went unheeded by America and we find ourselves floundering in debt, depravity, and fear.  More is coming, and soon unless we heed the warnings and turn our nation around.

Mitt Romney is another judgment coming our way.  IF he wins in November, which I don’t expect, we will still find ourselves further down the road to tyranny.  Remember that a Republican president and Republican controlled Congress gave us the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and the “Patriot Act”.  Will Mitty actually cut out the czars and dismantle the bureaucracy that is strangling our nation financially and destroying our freedoms one at a time?  I doubt it!!  I know Romney seems great after four years of Obama but he isn’t.  The answer will not be found in a NWO globalist.

We have been travelling down the road to dictatorship for many years.  Both political parties have taken us there by playing on our fears and offering the “good cop, bad cop” scenario for the last 20 years.  How long has it been since we have seen anything but “the lesser of two evils” from the Republican Party?  Ronald Reagan was the last time I voted “for” a candidate, and the only time since Nixon.  We have had George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney since Reagan.  When will the tide turn?  People have been telling me “vote for this guy and we will get a better candidate next time” since 1988. When will it actually happen?  In the mean time government, along with the debt, has exploded in size under both political parties and three terms of Republican presidents.

The answer to our situation is a true conservative who will make the Constitution the centerpiece of his administration.  John Dummett (www.johndummett4president.webs.com) will keep his promises.  He isn’t a career politician, he is a working class man who has a family, works 40 hours a week, and tries to survive just as I do.  I am tired of the roller coaster of lies, broken promises, empty promises that are never intended to be kept, and career politicians who are only looking at their power, prestige, and wealth at the expense of We the People.  It has to stop and We the People have to stop it.  Voting for the lesser of two evils won’t get it done.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Christians the Key to America’s Future; But They Are Failing

Christians the Key to America’s Future; But They Are Failing

2 Chronicles 7:14 is the Answer

“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and will pray and seek my face, and will turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear them from Heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Christians hold the key to the future of America and they are failing in their mission to preserve the freedom given to us by God Himself.  The Israelites of old got tired of following the prophets God gave them to oversea their nation and clamored for a king. God wanted them to follow Him but acquiesced to their demands and let them pick a king.  They picked Saul and he eventually drove them into slavery because he followed his own human desires and forgot where the real power came from.

Eventually, David was appointed by God through the prophet Samuel.  Saul did everything he could to destroy David but God protected him until the time for his reign was at hand.  David eventually sinned with Bathsheba and had her husband killed in battle.  He paid a very dear price but when he repented and came back to God he was forgiven.  When David’s grandson became king, the nation of Israel divided and began growing in their rebellion and even began worshipping idols.  For the next few centuries God allowed them to be defeated by their enemies and ended up in slavery, with their nation completely destroyed.

Today America is following the same path, and will be punished for it’s arrogance in the face of God’s love and kindness.  We have been given a great nation, formed from the blood of freedom loving men and women, and defended with the blood of freedom loving men and women for generations, generations that add up to 236 years of freedom from the tyranny of the King of England, or any other tyrrant.  We have been given a nation, formed upon “Divine Providence”, but are throwing it away.  We are on the verge of losing that freedom because we no longer look to God for our freedom, we look to men who have proven themselves to be interested only in giving a voice to their own evil desires in our society.

I continually hear the “anyone but Obama” chant from Christians who look to Mitt Romney as their savior.  “Only Mitt Romney can save us from the tyranny of Obama”, and “not voting for Romney is voting for Obama” are the words I am chided and ridiculed with.   In a conversation with my pastor a few weeks ago he spoke of a conversation he had with a “Christian” man a couple of years back.  This man told my pastor that he was “prayerfully pro-choice”.  My pastor had the same thought that hit me immediately, “you’re an idiot!!!!”(I would have voiced my thoughts but he was more discreet).

Rebellion against God is the malady that is destroying our nation.  Abortion is accepted as “a woman’s right to choose”.  That right to choose, at least as I read the Bible, ends at conception.  God formed us in our mother’s womb it says in Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. I ordained you a prophet to the nations”.  I have been chided with “where is the word ‘abortion’ mentioned in the Bible?” so many times it sickens me.  No, the word “abortion” is not in the Bible, but then the word “rapture” is not in the Bible either. I believe that everyone knows what the word “rapture” refers to and I don’t know any Christians who deny the Rapture is going to take place, regardless of what we call it.  I believe “caught up” is the most commonly term used.  I don’t know where the word “rapture” came from and don’t really care.  The point is I understand the concept, regardless of the actual word or term used, as in the references to abortion in today’s vernacular.

“Gay rights” is another misnomer that too many Christians find acceptable under the political correctness tab.  In 1 Corinthians 6:9, the Bible states very plainly that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God.  I don’t know how anyone can construe that verse as God accepting homosexuality as “normal”.  He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because Lot could not find five “righteous men”.  In the context of the story I find that to mean he could not find five men who were not homosexuals.

Now I read that a new version of the Bible is being published that promotes, and even celebrates, homosexuality.  How can any Christian not find that abhorrent?  Churches are even ordaining openly homosexual men and women into the ministry in celebration of their “enlightenment and tolerance”.  How can we expect God to honor this nation when that is the order of the day, not only in government, the courts, and secular society, but in our churches?

Some churches are now merging Christianity with Islam; calling is “Chrislam”, and once again celebrating their “enlightened” selves.  Islam denies the divinity of Jesus Christ and that is acceptable in the name of “tolerance” to some church groups and some Christians?  I don’t get it!!!  I don’t care how people live their lives in private but society accepting what God calls evil is not the right thing to do.  Tolerance and acceptance of these things is not what God calls for in His Word.  Jesus called for us to “love the sinner but hate the sin”.  Loving the sinner is not the same as enabling and accepting the sin.

Now we find Christians in such fear of another four years of Barack Obama that they will throw God aside and call me names because I refuse to vote for Mitt Romney, a man who openly embraces both abortion and “gay rights”.  Romney is a Mormon, allegedly a Christian, but I don’t hold that against him.  I know others who are Mormons but hold a much different attitude than does Mr. Romney.  What I take issue with is his pandering to the evil that is destroying our nation in order to be “tolerant and inclusive”.

People are being deceived, as is stated will happen in the end times.  Right has become wrong and wrong has become right.  Standing on biblical principles today in America is cause for ridicule and derision.  Calls of “bigot, homophobe, hater, right-winger”, and other vile names are used in order to marginalize and intimidate those who stand on Christian values, to silence any opposition.  God is being pushed aside by those “enlightened ones” who know better and are more “tolerant and inclusive”.  Those of us who stand by biblical concepts are treated ever more profanely as days go by.

Another four years of Obama may be “all my fault” but I cannot abandon God’s principles to gain the favor of those who are willing to abandon those same principles in order to be accepted in society.  When the day of God’s judgment comes to the United States of America as a nation will you be able to say that you stood your ground and did what you could to stop the slide to oblivion?  Many people laugh at and deride me now, and many who read this will add their voices of derision and laughter to the cacophony I now hear; but I think of the people who laughed at and derided Noah, until the rain started.

Voting for Romney because he isn’t quite as bad as Obama is not the answer to our nation’s woes.  The spirit of fear gripping most Christians today is harmful to us personally and as a nation.  That “spirit of fear” gripping our nation is rebellion against God.  Until we are willing to stand and fight what seems to be a hopeless fight we will continue to lose because God will not be with us.  How many times did the ancient Israelites win battles against hopeless odds because they put their faith in God instead of man?  David beat Goliath because he stood when others were afraid to stand. David’s faith in God brought him through an impossible battle because he stood on that faith when the leaders of Israel failed to do so.  Joshua at Jericho and Abraham rescuing Lot and the other captives with a token force of warriors are but two more examples of what we can do if we look to God instead of looking to man.

I will write in the name of John Albert Dummett Jr. (www.johndummett.us ) when I step into the voting booth in November.  “He can’t win” and “you are wasting your vote” are the popular comments I hear, and that is most likely correct in a fearful and secular nation.  John stands for the same values I stand for, and takes the same ridicule for his principles that I take.  I will not vote out of fear of Obama and I will not vote for the lesser of two evils ever again.  I am also voting for Dwayne Thompson (www.dwaynethompson.org ) in the Congressional race in my home district (Ok 2nd) because he stands on God’s principles, not on what sounds fancy to voters.  Both of these men will tell you that God is the answer to our problems, not politicians.  That is why I support them, because I believe in their message, and in God’s message.  They desire to follow God’s word and the Constitution.

Somewhere, sometime, somehow we have to turn this nation around.  There is only one way to accomplish that task and that is to get back to our founding fathers’ example.  They relied on “divine providence” to lead them and I believe they did a bang up job of creating a nation that is the most free and most prosperous ever created.  They didn’t do it by accident and they didn’t do it by relying on fear.  They created our nation and our Constitution by prayer and by following the concepts laid out in God’s Word, the Holy Bible.  We must get back to that concept if we are to survive as a free nation under the protection of Divine Providence.  Any other concept will be met with continued failure and eventual slavery, poverty, tyranny, and death.

Compromising God’s Word is not an option for me.  Voting for Romney would be a compromise of the most precious gifts God has given me and I will not do that.  Regardless of who wins in November those of us who stand on our Christian principles and values will suffer greatly in this nation because evil will reign.  God will not be with a nation who does not want Him and will not force anyone, or any nation, to follow Him.  He will have His way in the end.  Will you be there, regardless of the cost personally? Will you take the insults and derision to stand for God and the principles that were used to make our nation great or will you play it safe before man?

It may already be too late for America.  Noah’s boat may have already sailed, but I am among those who still believe there is time for repentance.  There are those crying in the wilderness for repentance of a sinful nation.  Those voices are not being heard at this time and it is sad that is the case.  A nation, One Nation Under God, is falling away from the very source of power that created it and will pay a terrible price very soon.  2 Chronicles 7:14 is the answer but too many Christians are failing to seek the right answer.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility give to me by almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
